Seems Like a Fine Series Music Lover: from Gulfport, FL -- July, 13, 2017

If you are contemplating any of these Vee Jay Very Best of Jazz discs, based on my experience with Vol. 5, you will be pleased. I'm assuming you are familiar with most of the names and music. Or perhaps you are listening to some of these artists for the first time. I will say that the sound of this CD is just fine. So much good jazz was recorded in the sixties - much with better care than some of the other genres of music. I suppose the only way this would sound better is by playing a pristine album on your old sound system. I will eventually begin adding the remainder of the series to my a great price here at
